The Brecon Beacons is home to an abundance of places to shop, from shopping centres with well-known big brands to picturesque high streets filled with local art, delicious produce, and handmade gifts.
Each of the region’s towns has something to offer. Brecon and Crickhowell have an impressive array of unique independent shops and boutiques, while Abergavenny is fantastic for foodies with its annual food festival and markets selling local produce.
Often described as the ‘town of books’, quirky Hay-on-Wye is famed for its secondhand and antiquarian bookshops. It also offers a wide range of independent retailers selling vintage fashion, jewellery and vinyl.
Llandeilo, a charming town sprinkled with Georgian and Victorian buildings is excellent for vintage finds and antiques, including clocks, oak furniture and silverware.
The region’s villages and rural areas are home to general stores and farm shops filled with local seasonal produce and Welsh specialities. Our national park visitor centres and tourist information office are great places to pick up local guides, maps and souvenirs.
